Waste and recycling centres

Our waste and recycling centres are for the disposal of household rubbish and recycling.

In this section:

Harefield Civic Amenity Site

New Years Green Lane, Harefield, UB9 6LX

To help keep our residents safe and in line with government advice on the coronavirus, this is closed until further notice.

Residents are asked to hold onto large items, such as furniture and mattresses, and avoid doing big clear-outs at home until the outbreak has subsided.

Please do not dispose of waste on a bonfire, as the smoke causes air pollution and has potential health effects for you and your neighbours.

DIY and building waste

Any waste created by construction or demolition works is classed as industrial waste - even if this is generated from home. You can take DIY and buildling waste to Harefield Civic Amenity Site and pay for it to be disposed of.
